Luckily, Rutgers University also offers fantastic internships with such projects (Rutgers). Overall, going to Rutgers University would give me a great opportunity to be successful in the future. In summary, Rutgers University would be the best college for me. For example, Rutgers excels in the major that I am going into. Also, it’s prime location allows me to stay on campus or commute from home.
Not only will Florida State University provide for my future, but I also believe that I will be able to contribute back to the university. I hope to bring new perspectives to classroom discussions, while also learning from others. I will also take part in many campus activities, one being student government. Student government will allow me to get involved on campus, make a difference in the community, develop leadership skills, and enhance my college experience. I also plan on joining a sorority and participating in club sports.

Our trip to the UW-Madison campus and the Kohl Center was very beneficial to me. I have always wanted to be a student at UW-Madison and have always been a big fan of the sports teams. So getting to see an inside look at things was pretty special for me. Also, we got to meet some awesome people that gave me some inspiration for my goals. I think one of the things I learned/realized the most the crazy hours that are put in by upper-level coaches.
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community.

Two years ago, I started my journey as a student in The Dual Language Honors College at Miami Dade College, little did I know that this institution would give me so many opportunities to ascend to a higher level of competitiveness and adroitness.

I am Treasurer of the National Honor Society because I want to organize a service project and buy supplies for schools on the neighboring islands of Ebeye and Gugegue.
I hope to be on the list of valedictorians, to be the president of the FCA club, to be the captain of the Varsity water polo team, to be a stronger individual, and to be known by all my teachers as a hard worker and a kind student.

I’ve already emailed the colleges that I am interested. Such as University of California Los Angeles, Cal Poly, Stanislaus University, Fresno State, Vanguard University, and Fresno Pacific. There is so much I want to accomplish before my last year of high school and I am going to do it
